We are very tardy in putting up David Wilkie’s lovely 13-foot David Moss canoe yawl, and you, prospective new owner, are fortunate she is still available! She has good paintwork, ‘reasonable’ varnish, original sails in good order, and a galvanized trailer with new wheels and bearings. David is asking a reduced price of £3,450, and you can use our Contact page to be put in touch with him.
David Moss boats are like hens’ teeth; your Editor has owned, and had much fun with, both 13 and 15 foot versions. Don’t hang about!
George Kruzynski on Vancouver Island (We live a few minutes away from the Jespersen yard as well as Bill Garden’s island—sadly now for sale) has written to us with pictures of his (L F Herreshoff) Rozinante Evangeline:
“Given that lousy weather is approaching, some of your afficionados might be interested in making a windvane of their yawl similar to the one I made for my workshop. Blew up the LFH plans and cut the profile out of a piece of plywood. Got our local sailmaker to sew up a suit of bona fide sails. Bicycle wheel axle for a bearing. Been happily dealing with 3 years of blustery weather thus far.” Read the rest of this entry »
Such an interesting yacht from 1907, we’ll overlook the mast count! Ben Boardman writes of his ‘project’ boat:
It’s unfortunate that I’ve come to the point where I’ve chosen to re-home Dawn but time and money are not what they once were. My hope is that she is taken on by a likeminded individual who sees her for the classic she is and could be. I realise that she’s not a yawl so thanks for overlooking the lack of mizzen, but am very glad that she will be seen by the right audience on the Albert Strange site [and this one! — Ed].
